Marc and Erin partnered with Kate Webster who has a PhD in experimental psychology and multivariate statistics, to help them sift through the myriad of stories, in hopes of finding evidence that could help couples struggling to conceive.
Dr Kate's philosophy is simple—to understand, at the very core, the sorrows and joys and scientifically map the similarities among them. This mapping can enable us to pinpoint moments of transition and triggers, allowing those on their journey to understand when it’s time to alter their course, leading to an acceptance of oneself, of their partners and one’s situation.
Getting to this place of grace often allows partners and individuals to make room for organic change to occur, a process that leads to remarkable possibilities.
Through this multi-year research project Dr Kate and Marc Sherman have developed a 9-step audio program that helps women and couples normalize the incredibly painful and chaotic journey of infertility. We differentiate ourselves from mainstream infertility treatment by emphasizing the power that our thoughts have on our bodies and spirts. Organic Conceptions recognizes that we are more than eggs and sperm and emphasizes the importance of the “Mind” in Mind-Body-Spirit approaches to well-being. The situation maybe what it is…but it is also what we make it.
Dr Kate and I were so fortunate to have engaged so many coupes who shared intimate details of their stores in an effort to help others who are living with the incredible uncertainty that comes when struggling to concieve. These stories are the foundation for our organization and we are committed to researching them stories at a level and depth never done before. Thanks to all who have contributed to this unique body of research!

When our research participants were able to reframe how they both internalize and personalize the month-to-month delays in conceptions, as well as confront the personal and societal pressures creating urgency in their journeys, we saw incredible things emerge. The mind is capable of so much, dictating the relationship with have with our bodies, our relationships, and our lives. Simply put, our bodies begin to believe and respond to the stories we tell ourselves. When you take control of your conception journey, and recognize where you are on your path and reframe your mind, we know that your story is much more likely to have a happy ending.
We witnessed just about every diagnosis to explain infertility—age, weight, PCOS, endometriosis, low sperm counts, even unexplained infertility—and we also witnessed them become irrelevant once people began to believe in their path. Our participants were able to become aligned and trusting of their bodies, and rid themselves of their “infertility label,”and all the obsessions around what to do and not do in order to conceive. Couples shed the strong and dominate emotions that they were damaged, broken and/or a “part” that needed to be fixed. This powerful alignment of the mind and body paved a path to parenthood.
When our minds are synchronized with our bodies and we come to a place of trust, peace, and acceptance, we enter a state of being that can alter our journeys to parenthood and beyond. Many participants were resisting the process, and in doing so were giving up living because they were living only to try. When we allow the alignment of our minds, body, and spirit especially in times of uncertainty, we open ourselves up to powers that can overturn any statistic or probability. We found that 67% of our research participants conceived in just 6 months after aligning their mind, body, and spirit.
Please share with us where you are on this sometimes painful and chaotic journey to parenthood! We will respond in 48 hours with some suggestions based on what we learned in this mult-year research!
